    when somthing becomes the sterotype its not exactly a "ripoff"

    If you buy a beer you expect it to taste like beer, beers can be very different, but the overall flavour of beer is recognised by all.

    Warhammer is an older "beer" than Warcraft, and set some benchmarks as to what a "beer" should have.

    but they are very different beers.

    Side note: Im drinking a beer.

    Does it really matter where the subs are to be an indicator of a good game? I don't think so, that seems to be a nitpick.

    You're right in that someone's opinion on something can't be wrong, someone can definitely like Everquest more than WoW, they'll never be wrong in that regard.

    Similarly, someone can like McDoubles from McDonalds more than any other burger in the world, that doesn't mean McDoubles are good cheeseburgers.

    Shouldn't probably use the word "better", but rather "more popular". That's the thing that defines what you call as what clone anyway. Not to mention that how good something is, is very much based on opinions, where as popularity isn't.

    Ok, so you got sub numbers out of the way, what about everything else that makes WoW better?

    I know but I still think WoW is better only cause based on from what I see on EQ....was somewhat lesser but got WoW started.

    Popularity does have a tendancy to show something is good.

    All games copy something from other games. It's part of making games. Some of the things in WoW are even odes to EQ/EQ2 monsters, like...

    http://eq2.wikia.com/wiki/Terrorantula

    and WoW's hat tip of...

    http://www.wowhead.com/npc=20682

    Is SoE complaining? No. As Tirion isn't complaining of AoE looting and dynamic world bosses from RIFT.

    In the end gamers get a better game.

    I am pretty sure that the codex tyranids was long out when starcraft was released which already included at least quite a bit more than just a couple genestealers. I don't remember though if it was earlier than the development start.

    Everything else is a matter of opinion. EQ has better graphics. Game play depends on what you enjoy

    It still has a community.

    In all of WoW's 10million players the game feels like being in NYC, and just as soulless. EQ2? I didn't even start the game alone, as soon as I stepped off the boat and got my first quest, had a player mentor by my side. Helped me with my first weapon and even crate, then stayed until I learned the mechanics (about 17 levels).

    THAT'S a community.

    Except Everquest DOESN'T have better graphics, that's something you can prove

    WoW orcs are nothing like Warhammer orcs.

    You're confusing a good community and a community. A community is still a community no matter what.

    All MMO's follow the same style in the end, no matter what.
